Legal Comparability And Cultural Identity: The Case Of Legal Reasoning In Jewish And Islamic Traditions, 2010 Selected Works

Legal Comparability And Cultural Identity: The Case Of Legal Reasoning In Jewish And Islamic Traditions

JOSEPH E. DAVID

Comparativism is not only a means for political change, but also a heuristic tool for the legal historian within explanatory contexts. The comparability of the Islamic and Jewish legal systems in the medieval period is a typical case for comparative legal history repeatedly mentioned both by legal historiographers and by scholars of religious studies. Our aim is to examine the comparability of these legal systems in the light of modern comparative theories and methodologies: What makes these legal traditions comparable? Is it the theological proximity, the factual transplantations or perhaps the jurists’ jurisprudential self-understandings? Our test case will be one ...


Ética E Política. Uma Breve Reflexão, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2010 Universidade do Porto

Ética E Política. Uma Breve Reflexão, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

A política não é uma ética armada, nem sequer uma ética prática ou aplicada. A política não é « serva » da ética, mas não pode recusar pelo menos alguma eticidade. Pelo menos uma eticidade mínima. Hoje é comum falar de ética e falta de ética na política. Que relações tal pode ter com a cidadania e a democracia, não apenas ao nível macro-institucional, mas também ao nível micro-estrural, de proximidade?

Patriarchy: The Political Theory Of Family Authority In The Book Of Genesis, Geoffrey P. Miller 2010 New York University

Patriarchy: The Political Theory Of Family Authority In The Book Of Genesis, Geoffrey P. Miller

New York University Public Law and Legal Theory Working Papers

This paper extends on prior work analyzing political theory in the Hebrew Bible. The Garden of Eden story offers a prolegomenon, presenting a developed utopian argument and sketching out other bases for political authority. The narratives of the Dark Age, the Flood, Noah’s covenant and the Tower of Babel argue that government and law are essential for human flourishing. The Bible next takes up the topic of authority in families. The book of Genesis endorses a strong form of patriarchal authority but also recognizes limits to that authority based on kinship, release, abandonment, higher authority, and power. It privileges ...


The Fallacy Of Neutrality From Beginning To End: The Battle Between Religious Liberties And Rights Based On Homosexual Conduct, Rena M. Lindevaldsen 2010 Liberty University

The Fallacy Of Neutrality From Beginning To End: The Battle Between Religious Liberties And Rights Based On Homosexual Conduct, Rena M. Lindevaldsen

Faculty Publications and Presentations

The Bible plainly states that everyone must either "bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ" or continue as "enemies in your mind." Un-Biblical thinking, like un-Bibical actions, leads one on a path away from God. Part II of this Article will briefly introduce a Biblical approach to thinking about contemporary issues and discuss how Christians can unwittingly abandon distinctively Biblical thinking under the guise of neutrality. Part III will present a number of cases that highlight the fallacy of neutrality in the battle between religious liberties and rights based on homosexual conduct. Part IV will contend that ...

Avaliar, Sim; Mas Devagar, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Quem guarda os guardas ? podem colegas julgar colegas, com imparcialidade ? Podem directores julgar omniscientemente todos os que o não são, só por o serem ? Podem estudantes, parte interessada, julgar com competência e justiça (em inquéritos nem sempre objectivos, a que podem responder tanto assíduos como faltosos, os de 0 como os de 20)? E podem os professores, se assim avaliados, deixar de passar a lisonjear os poderes e a tentar seduzir os alunos ?


Introduction To Conference, Turkey: At The Crossroads Of Secular West And Traditional East, Padideh Ala'I 2010 American University Washington College of Law

Introduction To Conference, Turkey: At The Crossroads Of Secular West And Traditional East, Padideh Ala'i

Padideh Ala'i

Produced as a result of a conference entitled “Turkey: At the Crossroads of Secular West and Traditional East”, held at the American University Washington College of Law in January 2008, this article provides a summary of conference speaker Feroz Ahmad’s discussion of Kemal Ataturk’s continuing influence and his “lai” form of government, as well as an overview of articles written by three of the conference speakers. The three articles highlight Turkey’s unique status as a country caught between the secular west and the traditional east with the potential to serve as a bridge and/or battleground between ...

The Dark Age: How The Biblical Narratives Demonstrate The Necessity For Law And Government, Geoffrey P. Miller 2010 New York University

The Dark Age: How The Biblical Narratives Demonstrate The Necessity For Law And Government, Geoffrey P. Miller

New York University Public Law and Legal Theory Working Papers

This paper continues the analysis of political theory in the Hebrew Bible. In earlier work I argue that the Garden of Eden story explores why people have an obligation to obey the law. The narratives that follow describe a “Dark Age” characterized by accelerating violence and ending in a catastrophic flood. These texts expand the analysis of the Eden narratives by asking whether human beings can achieve a good and decent life in the absence of government and law. The narratives describe an experiment in which people interact strategically in an environment where cooperation can generate a surplus but defection ...
